“The Greasy Hands Preachers,” a film made possible by Belstaff and executive producer Orlando Bloom, examines the lives of those dedicated to the world of custom motorbikes. Following familiar names including Roland Sands, Shinya Kimura and the crew from Blitz Motorcycles, we look at, not only the sport of riding, but the intense emotional connection that many riders have with build process itself and their custom prized creations. The action-packed film is shot with a backdrop of stunning scenery from the hills of Galicia to the saltflats of Utah, all captured on Super-16mm film for one pleasing visual experience. Taking in a range of experiences from across the globe, this ode to biker culture a reminder that “four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.” Rent or purchase the film here.
